Thanks for the info I thought it might be a temporary station due to the PI being the same as Xmas FM which I presume will be next.

Thanks for the info I did receive 8Radio last Monday from Three Rock and the PI was 20C4 so I presume the TXs use a different PI.

found a weak trace of 99.4 on a recording of yesterdays lift

i'm certain my old aerial wouldn't have produced this, it would have just given Radio 1 Llandonna at huge levels
